Tango Milagroso

Somehow I stumbled into Mandragora Tango website, an orchestra of tango musicians based out of Minneapolis about 2 months ago. Since I wasn’t familiar with them or their music I started listening to just about all their recordings on their site. They make it really easy to hear their music. Their site is HTTP://www.mandragoratango.com .Tango Milagroso

When their song “El Recodo” collided with some colorful photos from my Argentinian photographer friend Crisfer, it was a case closed! I also added some images from Marcelo Romeo Photography, another collaborator from Buenos Aires. Modified some video clips digitally by using a craquelure application, a few paintings and art, and the cake was almost ready to be cooked!

The real challenge was the timing, which was sort of syncopated at times with a slower backdrop, making a perfect sync a bit difficult. The compromise was to speed up and slow down as I saw fit, making my own rules as usual… At the end of the 5th. edit, I was so saturated with the music and images that I couldn’t make sense anymore. Two days of rest (like a good wine?) and back to look at the almost finished product. Some minor adjustments, and VOILA!

I was rushing because I wanted to finish it in time to dedicate it to Crisfer’s for her birthday present, and I managed to post it one day earlier, so all worked out fine.
